How many people with missing limbs, have prayed and had those limbs restored? Surely a couple of those were answered right? Why not?
He will listen, and tends to pay more attention to you when you talk to him. Sure people can have limbs restored through surgery. It's like the guy who said I was stranded on a deserted island and prayed for help and you let me die.
Lord why didn't you save me?
Well I sent 4 boats after you, why didn't you get on one of them?
They didn't feel right to me.
